Gower is a hive of activity in the summer months. There are miles of sandy beaches which are all in short driving distances. Being on a peninsula gives you a wide range of choices when it comes to Gower beaches, whether its for lounging in the sun or experiencing Gower from the sea by boat.
Oxwich Bay is well known for surfing, sailing and sunbathing, so there is something for all of the family. The Oxwich Bay Hotel sits on the edge of the bay for refreshments or a family meal and is only 10-15 minutes walk down Oxwich hill from Glyn-Y-Mor.
In Oxwich there is a small village shop for groceries or hot food and is directly opposite the Oxwich Bay car park.
Slade Bay is a small secluded beach just below Slade Valley and is quite unknown of by tourists, therefore very quiet with a view across the channel to Lundy Island, perfect for peace and relaxation. Slade Bay is 10-15 minutes walk from Glyn-Y-Mor.
There are many footpaths to choose from when exploring Gower, allowing you to experience the breathtaking views wherever you are.
Port-Eynon Bay, which is just a short walk along the footpath from Oxwich, has locally owned fish and chip shops, souvenir shops, restaurants and a local pub. All of these are right on the sea front which has seating areas so you can sit down, relax and take in the scenery.
Rhossili Bay is a fifteen minute drive from Oxwich and has one of the most outstanding views in Gower. Rhossili is home to the Worms Head and Rhossili downs. Here you will find a bistro, local pub and cafe. Rhossili is ideal if you want to see why Gower is Britains first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
Ten minutes away from Oxwich, you have Three Cliffs Bay which has featured on national television, nominated for one of the best views in Britain.
Its fair to say that wherever you go in Gower, you will be amazed with the amount of beauty in such a small area.
